A Gaithersburg man has been charged with murder in the case of a man found dead in a driveway earlier this month in the Norbeck area of Silver Spring, according to Montgomery County police.

The victim, Marc Taylor St. Aubin, 23, of the 15800 block of Laughlin Lane, suffered from blunt force injuries and a stab wound, according to an autopsy. A holster was found along the small of the victim’s back, but the handgun has not been recovered, police said.

Detectives from the Montgomery County Police-Major Crimes Division announced Sunday that they arrested Tavon Antonio Miles, 26, of the 19600 block of Framingham Drive in Gaithersburg in the March 3 homicide of St. Aubin.

Witnesses inside the house that evening told police that numerous armed suspects entered the residence. A struggle ensued, gunshots were heard, and the victim was injured. Some of the witnesses brought St. Aubin to a car in the driveway so he could be driven to the hospital. Other witnesses began to remove guns, a safe, and marijuana from the house. Officers recovered bullets from inside the home.

Shortly after arriving on scene, officers were told that a man – later identified as Miles -- was dropped off at a nearby hospital suffering from gunshot wounds. A bullet taken from Miles’ clothing was the same caliber and fired from the same gun that shot St. Aubin. The victim had a gun of that caliber registered through Maryland.

Miles was charged March 22 with first-degree murder, first-degree burglary, and armed robbery. He is being held without bond.

Detectives are working to identify other suspects in this case and ask anyone with information about the homicide to call the Major Crimes Division at 240-773-5070. Callers may remain anonymous.
